SBI's associate banks employees on one-day strike

Employees of State Bank of India's associate banks, including State Bank of Mysore, State Bank of Patiala, State Bank of Travancore and State bank of Hyderabad went on a one-day strike today to protest the move to merge them with the SBI permanently.

They also demanded filling up of vacancies, increasing the staff strength in the Housing loan section and extending the compassionate ground appointments to associate banks also.

The talks held in Delhi over these issues recently had failed, prompting the unions to call for the strike.

The All India Bank Employees Association claimed that 50,000 employees participated in the strike today.

In a press release, it warned that they would resort to a nationwide strike on June 24 if the SBI management did not take a decision on their demand.
